  • Mike Weires
    General Manager

    Hi, my name is Mike Weires and I am the General Manager of Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion. I grew up in Iowa and graduated from the University of Northern Iowa with a degree in Psychology. I've worked in the car business for a total of 20 years, 14 of those years with Peterson's.  

    My wife and I have been married for 23 years and have three awesome sons.  Our oldest son is married and works as a hydrologist for the state.   Our second oldest is in his third year at the University of Idaho, and our youngest is about to start his first year of college at Idaho. 

    When I'm not working, I enjoy anything I can do with my family.  This includes skiing, camping, and golfing. I also enjoy doing yoga at my wife's studio.

  • Todd Pritchard
    General Sales Manager

    Hi, I'm Todd, General Sales Manager for Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion. I was born in Hawaii, but moved around a lot in my younger years because my father was in the military. I lived in Alabama, Alaska, and Texas. I came to Idaho to go to BYU-Idaho. I began to study business, but ended up transferring to Boise State and changing my major to education. However, I never actually pursued a teaching position upon finishing at BSU. While attending BSU, I started working for the Peterson team, managing the detail shop. I worked there until I finished school. Once graduated, I started selling cars for Peterson's. In 2007, I moved to the sales desk as a Sales Manager, which is the current position I hold. All together, I've been at Peterson's for a little over 11 years.

    I'm Toyota, Lexus, Scion certified as a sales consultant and sales manager. I received the Sales Society award for three years in a row prior to coming onto the sales desk.

    My wife and I have been married for 15 years. We have two daughters and two sons ranging in age from 12 to 2. My wife is a registered nurse and makes a pretty killer strawberry shortcake. My daughters both play piano and my younger daughter also plays violin. My oldest daughter plays basketball and runs cross country track. My boys love to play Wii, watch Cars, Toy Story Trilogy, play legos, and ride their plasma cars. They, like their dad, love Little Caesars Hot-n-Ready pizza, but prefer sausage as opposed to pepperoni. My son, Luke, has pulled off some pretty boss moves over the past year, which has made me laugh pretty hard.

    I like to watch baseball and college football and college basketball. I'm not much into traveling. I like 1997 Land Cruisers and the 1998-2003 body style BMW 5 series. I love nerds, Del Taco, used clothes, playing Frisbee, and reading Dr. Seuss books to my kids. I hate to iron clothes and unload the dishwasher. I love to grill outside and I have learned to cook some pretty killer briskets and even killer-er tri-tips no matter what season it is. I also grill up some pretty wicked fish tacos. I enjoy working out in the mornings because the gym has cable TV and I don't have cable TV at home.

  • Shawn Lancaster
    Sales Manager
    208.378.9000

    Hi, my name is Shawn Lancaster and I am the Sales Manager at Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion. I was born in Tennessee and raised in Minnesota. I moved to Boise in 1988 and attended Vallivue High School. Upon graduating in 1993, I started working with companies like Gem State Alloys, V-1 Propane, Swire Coca Cola, and the like. At the age of 24, I started working for the Peterson group. My first day on the job was November 1, 1999; since that time, I've loved coming to work just as much as the day I started. 

    Throughout my career, I've achieved many awards such as the Master Certification through Toyota. I've also won walk around contests. I have 7 Salesman of the Year awards, 3 Shop Call of the Nation awards, and I just received my 10 Years of Service award for Peterson's!

    I have a great 10-year-old boy who I enjoy spending time with. We like to do a lot of things together, especially hunting, fishing, and sports.

  • Rich Waksmonski
    Service Manager

    I am Rich Waksmonski. Since April of 1991, I've worked in the automotive industry. I spent 10 years as a Service Tech, achieving my ASE Master Technician Level. With continual tests, I keep up-to-date with industry standards and new improvements in my field, and over the past four years, I've managed to win the Toyota Excellence award.

    For most of my life I lived in Northern California. It wasn't but six years ago that my family and I decided to move to Idaho. Upon the change, I began working with Peterson Toyota. I started as the Service Advisor and just a year later, I was offered a service management position. Since then, I've been promoted to Service Manager over all service at Peterson Toyota, Lexus, Scion.

     My wife and I just celebrated our 15 year anniversary. We have two kids, one boy, 13 (man I feel old), and one daughter, who is 8, both are great kids. I could not be more proud of them. Most of our lives revolve around the kids, whether it's football practice or keeping up on the 2.5 acres we have in Kuna. We love water sports, camping, the beach (when we can go visit), motorcycle riding, and somehow collecting farm animals. This sounds weird, but I enjoy yard work-it's relaxing. I get to mow about one acre of lawn every weekend; good thing I have a riding mower.

    Hi, I'm Brian, Parts Manager for Toyota, Lexus, Scion. I was born and raised in Boise, Idaho. I have never wanted to leave Boise--I love living here.

Together we have raised two sons. Our oldest son is a BSU accounting graduate and now a state auditor. Our second oldest is currently studying sports medicine at U of I.

    When I'm not working, my hobbies include sprint kart racing, sprint car racing, boating, and camping. Above all, one of my favorite things to do is spend time with my wife, boys, and our two beagles.
